Domestic abuse battery or domestic violence refers to the physical or emotional harm caused by someone to others with whom they share a family or other close relationship.
Domestic violence laws address both criminal charges that can be levied against the accused, as well as civil charges. These laws have become much harsher today as society has rightfully brought the issue of domestic violence into the light. But we understand that things can happen behind closed doors in the heat of an argument that result in two entirely different versions of the same story. Our job is to get our clients past false accusations to help clear their names and records.
Similarly, we defend clients against claims of stalking.
Stalking is defined as the intentional and repeated following or harassing of another person that would cause a reasonable person to feel alarmed or to suffer emotional distress. Stalking includes, but is not limited to:
- Repeated uninvited presence of the alleged perpetrator at another person’s home, workplace, school or other places;
- Verbal or behaviorally implied threats of death, bodily injury, sexual assault or any other statutory criminal act
Stalking penalties are harsher when alleged victims are under the age of 18. If you have been charged with domestic abuse or stalking, it is very important you hire an experienced defense attorney immediately. Call DeJean Law Office today to discuss your case and how we can help.
